What is the opposit word for the postpone
HI

I can't think of one word. The most natural phrase is probably "bring forward"...

- We were going to postpone the meeting of the 15th September until the 29th, but now we've decided to bring it forward to the 10th

Regards, Dave

I do wish we would adopt the Indian English verb "prepone." It's so logical and fills a void. However, it's not used enough yet globally. One of our project managers was from India and she used the word, so it caught on a little in our group, but not universally.

I agree with Dave, bring forward is a good one.
